Red Clay Hills Barn Quilt Trail

Barn quilts are painted quilt squares-usually fashioned on boards and then mounted on a barn or other building. While cloth quilts are usually made up of a series of squares of the same pattern placed together, a barn quilt is almost always a single square.

Spinning Star

14670 Hwy 21 South

This barn quilt design was chosen because it resembles the top of a carnival ride as observed from atop the  ferris wheel.  It is displayed on fair cabin 183 during the week of the Neshoba County Fair, but can be viewed at 14670 Hwy 21 South for the remainder of the year.

Autumnal color scheme with a contrasting use of maple leaves, alternates several patterns with interesting shapes nestled within the entirety of the piece.

Patriotic pattern comes from the love of America and the designer's wish to display our nation's flag.

Log Cabin

A fun, playful design utilizing an eye-catching arrangement of colors with similarly striking use of geometry.

Flag Heart

Neshoba County Community                         Center

A display of patriotism and warmth of heart, centered on a field of yellow. Vibrant and inspiring.

The Trail

In many communities, an organizing group-an arts council, a quilt guild, a 4-H club, or simply a motivated bunch of residents-work together to organize their barn quilts into a trail. Some are guided walks in a downtown area that includes historical buildings. More often, quilt trails take visitors on a drive through the countryside where barn quilts are mounted on farm buildings, on homes, along fences, and sometimes on freestanding posts. A quilt trail may include stops at galleries, farm stands, and other points of interest that make the journey a day-long event.The Red Clay Hills Barn Quilt Trail is headquartered in Neshoba County and extends membership to anyone residing in neighboring counties.
